French for Kids!


Our teachers are dedicated to providing a rich and varied bilingual learning environment and to guiding and encouraging all students to experience, explore and interact with their world in a joyful, playful, loving and unhurried manner.

We pride ourselves on working as a collaborative team of professionals, united in our common goal of helping our students to thrive and grow to their fullest potential during their years in our bilingual preschool. We highly value our work with the children and their families, as we do our working relationships with one another. We enjoy coming to work each day, we support each other, we strive to improve ourselves and our program and we love to laugh with each other and the children.

Monique Heymann, co-founder, and Valerie Redfield serve as Co-Directors of the school. Ms. Redfield has primary responsibility for school management and administration while Ms. Heymann has primary responsibility for guidance and oversight of the educational program. They are both state certified Lead Teachers. Three other teachers work with Ms. Heymann as team teachers to provide a daily student to teacher ratio of 6:1. Our teacher retention rate is exceptionally high with the average number years of employment at the school exceeding 10 years.

All members of the staff are bilingual. The current teachers are natives of France and the United States. All staff hold bachelorʼs or advanced degrees in education, management or related fields. All are certified as Early Childhood Educators by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and are trained annually in CPR and First Aid.
